Peanut Allergy Warning

9 years ago

The AllergyMoms newsletter this month has a very sad story of Andrew Michael Smith. His mother Pamela hopes that other children with peanut allergy or other food allergies can benefit and stay vigilant after hearing their story.

Andrew’s life was tragically cut short this past February. His mother Pamela told us that he died from an anaphylactic reaction that was complicated by his asthma. She shared her son’s story in the hopes of saving another child. (Pamela’s responses are bolded.)

 She says "I wish I was the parent who was warned"

Take care,
